What happen when we plant seeds in mid-July ?
My name is Matt and I am beginning in the wonderful hobby that gardening is. I asked some questions about a year ago and received some very kind responses from many of you. Many thanks again regarding that.
Last week, I found a beautiful seeds mix by what seem to be an amazing company named Nature's garden seed company (from Victoria in BC)
I was very excited when I purchased it and I found a great spot to plant the seeds in my garden. The mix includes:
Black-Eyed Susan, New England Aster, Butterfly Weed, Purple Coneflowers, Fireweed, Indian Blanket, Large-leave Lupine.
I am well aware that we are in mid-july and that chances are that none of the seeds that I could plant at this time would bloom. So I have a few questions for you:
1-If my wish if for the flowers to flower next year, is it better if I plant the seeds now, in late October or in the early Spring of next year ?
2- If I plant the seeds now, and the plants start growing this year (without necessarly blooming), would it imply that they will grow again next year ?
3- Would you have any other recommandations to make my project successful ?
Thank you for reading me and helping me.
